So it's 1985.
I'm a junior in high school.
I like Devo, Adam and the Ants,
Black Flag and 7 Seconds.
I read lots and lots of J.R.R Tolkien.
I play videogames at Spaceport
or on my friend's Apple II plus.
I ride a Skull Skates Mutant.
And I love comic books.

I actually found issues #1-6 sitting on a shelf in a comic store last weekend.
I know I still have my original copies buried SOMEWHERE.
Maybe at my parent's house?
But for $4 it was worth grabbing them for a read.
I wonder if I'll still like them?
Fashion in Action? Seriously?
